20 Most Recent Amana 16.8 cu. ft. / 476 liter Upright Freezer Deepfreeze AFU1705B Questions & Answers


The subject is a Eureka Model 350 hand held steamer that can be found at Lowes and other places for around $49.95. With this steamer you can thaw out an evaporator as quick as if you were using a heat gun or hair dryer but without the slightest concern about melting plastic or wiring. By using steam instead of pouring water (yes many still do) there is little to clean up. With the many attachments it comes with there are other uses (i.e. cleaning, thawing drains, thawing IDI fill tubes, etc.). The steam also makes the replacement IDI fill tube (rubber end) more pliable and easier to complete the installation when used at the end.
This unit has a trigger and can be used to blow out a stopped up drain on a refrigerator by letting the pressure build up a little then blow through the drain with one of the attachments. As for thawing out evaporators it had a fine jet tip for actually CUTTING through solid ice.
Another great use for this tool is refrigerator door gaskets. The hot steam works faster than a heat gun with out the worry.

Note: Do not aim steam directly onto the plastic freezer liner. The rapid temperature change could damage the liner.

you can actually bend the door into shape if you can see that it is warped. If the freezer hing is on that corner then you can loosen the screw on that side and push the door into place and re-tighten the screws. You need a big screwdriver and a big person to get it done. you can test the repair with a dollar bill. Slip it in and close the door. It should take a little pull to pull it out. Go all around the door like that. anywhere it slides out easily you will have an air leak..

This is one of those thing that need to be left to an EPA certified tech, You need a recoverey tank/bag and gauges to check to see if that is even the problem.

Hi,
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

It should reset itself once it gets cold again which could take a day. if that doesn't do it turn freezer off and on again see if that will do it

There are three components that control the automatic defrost cycle.

#1 is the defrost timer, this is a simple clock and set of contacts that switch from cooling mode to defrost mode every 8 to 10 hours. The timer knob can be turned clockwise slowly until a positive 'click' is felt, this is the defrost mode. Let it sit there for about 10 minutes and you should hear the hiss or sizzle, if not then we go a bit deeper.

#2 defrost heater, this heater is located on the bottom of the cooling coils behind the back panel in the freezer, it will run long enough to remove the frost from the evaporator coils and turn off by the defrost terminator or no longer than 25 minutes maximum

#3 defrost terminator or thermostat or bi metal, 3 names same part. This is clipped on to the evaporator coils near the top and senses the temperature, it is there so the defrost cycle does not run too long.

Check the defrost timer, rotate it until a solid click is heard. If your unit starts to work replace that timer. Good Luck

i wouldn't worry about vacuum seal. door gaskets contain a low powered magnet around the entire face for "contact" seal, id look into perhaps something placed on one of the shelves or door blocking the door from closing as tightly as you remembered. if you have a problem with that gasket. it would have to be physically ripped and where it didn't make contact you would have an influx of warm air resulting in ice balls forming inside door liner adjacent to seal
